I am completely new to Oracle with basic sql plus knowledge. I have installed Oracle 10g Release 2 and java 1.6 .
All i want to do is to connect Oracle with Java so that i can send queries and retrieve results. I found that we need a jdbc driver
and a odbc driver for connecting. How can i get them and how to install ? Or should i use another type of driver ?
Does Oracle have a server ?if yes , should I use it for accessing the database? What is the purpose of a server and how to use it?
